Interests = Information theory / coding theory / Shannon theory: Random coding and polar coding over communication channels; Distributed storage and distributed computation, application of algebra and combinatorics to.

For meta-comments of my works categorized by topics, see:

I have once computed, on a supercomputer, the Tutte–Whitney polynomials of Reed–Muller codes of length 64. This GitHub repository keeps the source codes, comments, and results.
